A baby siamang is available for public viewing at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk.
The zoo said Wednesday that the animal was born on Aug. 20. The baby's gender has not been determined.
The animals are native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia and are the largest species of gibbon. They have black shaggy hair and a naked face.
The zoo says siamangs have a large throat pouch that can be inflated, allowing them to make loud calls that can be heard more than two miles away.
They are omnivorous, eating mostly leaves, but also fruit, insects, nuts, small animals, birds and bird's eggs. Males and females are similar in size, growing to 30 to 35 inches in length and weighing approximately 17 to 28 pounds.
